Wow! I just did a google search for olympics lapbook and came across your blog. We're a brand-new homeschooling family (beginning 8/25) and thought we'd get our feet wet by trying a unit study on the Summer Olympics. Thank you, thank you for all of the great resources. You made my day!! ~Melissa in ND

You have some awesome materials posted here. I've blogged about Olympic printables about 3 times now and hare included many of these resources. Some, I haven't shared, but printed out. You did have some new ones, which I'm excited about using.

This is great you have saved me a lot of work. We start school tomorrow and have been talking about the Olympics and China. Voice of the Martyrs has Olympic prayer bracelets for China and we are wearing them. This got us talking how we could study the country and Olympics, I just started searching for links when your blog popped up, thank you!!!! I'm going to link to your site on my blog which has the same lay out as yours and include a link on my web site if that is OK?

Peace, <><

Hi! I have been homeschooling my 4 wonderful children for 9 years. There ages are 13,11,8, and 5. This is my 1st year to unit study. We just got finished with Ancient Egypt and it was fascinating. We were thinking about the Olympics next, and after seeing all of the information that you have so kindly made available to us, we have made our decision. Thank you so much for all the work you have done. Let us know what subject you will be doing next! Ha! Ha! Thanks again.
